​Freedom Cry

This song is by Sizzla and appears…

Glory be on to the Father and to the Son
Ruler of creation, Honorable

Oh Israel, Isikiel,
Them yah rebel warrrior, them ah go rebel
And I won't fail, much less to compel
You have the knowledge you tell

Emanuel say up with Jah palaces,
Down with your folly things
Light in your crevices,
No matter what it is,
Look within the scene,
The Nyabinghi keeps rollin', ey

Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yeah
Black man rise, too long you dey under disguise
Up with Jah palaces
Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yeah
Black woman rise, too long you've been under your disguise

So long in affliction, the Conquering Lion shall help
And everyday the robbers of the people,
Keep on exhalting themselves
Yo, why y'all so greedy? Robbing from the needy,
Hey ey ey where is the poor man's wealth?
No this isn't easy, would you believe me?
Babylon is messing up your wealth
They form the reason, we have been prisoned
Youths let your voices be heard
Yo, and every season them target Black people
To kill the innocent they have the nerve
Up with Jah palaces

Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yeah
Black man rise, too long you dey inna your disguise
Up with Jah palaces
Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yeah
Black man rise, too long you dey inna disguise

No more suffering, we ah go home
No more rustling, to the throne
To ease all ah the pain we afi chant fi go home
Release the mental chain from down inna Rome
Nuttin you ah gain and every day you ah moan
No strain to give us the honey from the comb
More and more rain pouring down
Hardcore warrior tell me how me sound
Inflation ah crush ya just like bomb
Fluctuation ah rush you outta dem town
Come we go ah Africa and lef dem alone
Most you slayed why is it you crave for more
Tell them this

Well ah Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yeah
Black woman rise, salvation never come inna disguise
Up with Jah palaces
Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yeah
Black woman rise, salvation never come inna disguise

Well, I receive the blessing of the morning
From afar I hear Ethiopia calling
Tell them fi, give I the knowledge of the King
The power of the Trinity always lie within
Ah innocent slave down inna the west
From Africa them tek we that make me vex
Pon them slave ship ah black man full every deck
And down inna the west me nah go flow no flap with ex, yo

Ey Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yeah
Black man rise, salvation never come inna disguise
Up with Jah palaces
Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yeah
Black woman rise, salvation never come inna disguise

Oh Israel and Isikiel,
Them yah rebel warrrior, them ah go rebel
And I won't fail, much less to compel
You have the knowledge you tell
Emanuel say up with (echoing)...
